We would like to thank The Aspen Times for publishing the story about the continued unauthorized solicitation of local business owners (“Aspen booster club tries to bust up sports scammers”, April 26).
These national scamming companies contact local business owners to get them to purchase advertising on high school posters that they don’t even print. It is our hope that many businesses saw this article and only purchase poster advertising from a high school student in person.
The students are visiting businesses in person, with a copy of the poster and a request for advertising letter. The students and student athletes have committed to giving back to their school, athletics and clubs by securing advertising for the seasonal sports calendar poster. We hope that many local businesses will support their efforts as proceeds from the poster help offset costs for the 23 varsity sports
